Never miss another 'Magic Of Motown' show
Magic Of Motown + George McCrae + Gwen Dickey + Jimmy James
Get ready! - the UK's number one live Motown concert show returns bigger than ever before with its all-new 2013 spectacular.
Ain't no mountain high, ain't no valley low, ain't no river wide enough to keep The Magic of Motown from getting to you.
The smash hit from the states authentically recreates the sublime harmonies, slick looks and legendary musicanship that were the making of Motown.
The UK's biggest Motown concert tour celebrates 50 years of number one songs with its brand-new show.
This show will now feature special guests George McCrae, Gwen Dickey of Rose Royce and Jimmy James.
Live on stage it is the music of the Temptations, Diana Ross and The Supremes, Four Tops, Stevie Wonder, Jackson 5, Marvin Gaye, Lionel Richie, Martha Reeves, Isley Brothers and scores more. The best live Motown tribute concert show boasts: a superbly-choreographed cast, 36 million-selling hits, dozens of dazzling costume changes, that authentic Detroit sound – direct from sell-out shows in London's O2, Glasgow's SECC, Wales Millennium Centre and the Belfast Waterfront. Includes all-time-favourites: Stop in the Name of Love; Get Ready; I Want You Back; I Heard it Through the Grapevine; Signed, Sealed, Delivered; I Can’t Help Myself and more. Sixties classics give way to present-day masterpieces from Lionel Richie and Diana Ross.

Known as ‘The King’ of the soul revolution, George McCrae has been famous ever since his 1974 smash hit Rock You Baby stormed the charts worldwide. He is credited with creating the ‘Miami Sound’, which fast became the most fashionable disco sound of the seventies. His Rock You Baby track became the benchmark for disco artists around the globe, securing his place in disco history.

Seventies soul diva and voice of Rose Royce is still 'Wishing On A Star' at the 'Car Wash'. Gwen left Rose Royce in 1980 and ever since has been performing as a solo artist around the UK. She has also worked with Jay-Z in 1998 on his own composition called 'Wishing On A Star', featuring Gwen who re-recorded some of her original lyrics. Meanwhile the classic songs have been covered in recent years, including Mary J. Blige ('I’m Going Down'), Faith Evans ('Love Don’t Live Here Anymore'), Christina Aguilera and Missy Elliott ('Car Wash'), proof that Gwen's material has injured by today's artists.
